O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay! Hast thou slain the Jabberwock? No, no, my beamish boy, it’s a new single from England’s The Monochrome Set! “Suddenly Last Autumn” is the second song on the band’s 13th album, Cosmonaut, and it’s all a rabid (or Jack Rabid) fan could want from the incomparable M-Set: twangy surf guitar, Fats Waller-esque organ, odd spoken-word interludes, and, natch, an arch, deadpan vocal from the ever-brilliant Bid. We’re so happy we could eat an oyster!

Cosmonaut comes out September 9 on Germany-based Tapete Records. But don’t wait, pre-order it now you guttersnipes!
